City trip: Bratislava

I love weekend breaks away and I usually follow a simple rule in picking a destination: cheapest flights on Ryanair available. It works most of the time. This is exactly how I ended up booking a weekend break in Bratislava. I was told to expect a scene from Eurotrip so imagine my surprise and delight…

Trend test

I sometimes flick through magazine pages amazed with some of the trends being featured. Who and why would ever want to wear that?! On the other hand, some of my nearest & dearest consider my wardrobe quite ‘out there’ and only the other day I had a chat with my boy who confirmed that he…

I slept with Anja

I love discovering new brands and after my recent trip to Warsaw, I am doing a bit of a trial run of some Polish designers and brands. So far so good! This t-shirt if from She’s a riot – love the funky brand name, the slogan on the tee is cool (I slept with Anja)…

Dunnes Stores AW’14

For the first time in 6 years Dunnes Stores hosted a fashion show to launch their new collection. Not just a fashion show. They have transformed their Georges Street store into an enchanted forest with fabulous models swishing down the isle to Kate Bush tunes. Personally all I missed was a unicorn! (Joke). They had…

9-5 #I mean business

I am not sure this outfit post is the message I meant for today but here we are. It’s been 5 years since my first post. I find it rather hard to believe that this tiny page which I started to keep myself sane while out of work has lasted that long. 5 years! Of…

The duster

New season = new coat? Certainly for winter we all have that thought at some stage. Which is possibly why I couldn’t quite figure out the duster coat frenzy. It surely ain’t a winter coat. Not really suitable for autumn either. Too autumnal to be worn in late summer. Did I miss something? Spring is…

HOF

┬áThe last time I stayed in London for a while I spent a lot of time in House of Fraser. I found it to be a great one stop shop and I happily worked my way through the floors and departments: shoes, cosmetics, bags, homeware, clothes… When looking for images of items I lusted after…

I got it from my mama

Sorry if you found the title misleading but I’m actually referring to the trousers, which quite literally come from my mum. I still can’t believe that they used to be hers. The reasons probably shouldn’t be shared but here we go: 1. When did my mum ever wear light coloured, wide pants? 2. When did…

New Look AW’14

You might have noticed that I wear a rather significant amount of New Look clothes. I find their fashion affordable, trendy without being wearable for a week only and the fabric quality is good for the price you pay. I always look forward to their seasonal previews to see what’s coming into the stores soon…

Hero

I recently met my sister and her family for brunch in Howth. We got one of those fabulous sunny Sundays which in Dublin can only mean two things: the schools are back (traffic, stress, crowds) & winter is around the corner. Trying to take advantage of the sunny spell, I finally got to break in…
